Best entertainer in tennis??

The Williams sisters say they are not just athletes, but entertainers, determined to put on a good show- not just grind it out ont the tennis court. Who do you think is the best "entertainer" in tennis??

For me it's Serena!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

No-one now, the Williams girls give entertaining speeches and interviews but are all business on the court IMO.

Anyway in the past for me, it was Natasha Zvereva.
Always had something up her sleeve e.g Her Mary impersonations were a crack up!

Jennifer Capriati. I am always surprised and excited. Especially by the 3 Grand Slams she won, each win was amazing.

Jennifer entertains the crowd today. Many of her victories have been dramatic and they really pull in the crowds. She keeps you on the edge of your seat.

From the past I'd say Arantxa. Compared to Steffi and Monica, she was much more animated and lively on court, always involving the crowds (which is why she is a crowd favourite everywhere!).

Justine Henin's style of tennis is entertaining, especially her backhand shots. You really can watch her all day.

Elena Dementieva AFR

Serena (shows a lot of emotions at times) and Jennifer (always amusing). Put the two together on the court against each other and enjoy......

Martina vs Jennifer when they were joking about drinking Heineken. But Jennifer in general is entertaining and I love the gasp from the audience when Hingis pulls off one of her shocking crosscourt dropshots when pulled out wide.
